Jeremy Eisler of the Mississippi Center for Legal Services walked those in attendance through ways homeowners can challenge a foreclosure in court.
During the process, he said, a homeowner can file a lawsuit if that person feels a home is being foreclosed on. They also can file for Chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy or seek a preliminary injunction.
But Eisler said it doesn't often reach the point that someone has to try to get a judge to block a foreclosure or eviction from a foreclosed property, explaining borrowers and lenders typically work out some type of repayment plan before a foreclosure reaches a courtroom.
Arbitration is becoming more common in real estate documents such as mortgage agreements, Eisler said.
"I haven't had to get many (injunctions), because it's often not necessary, which is good," he said.
Someone seeking an injunction, he continued, has to prove that a case is likely to prevail on its merits; the injunction is necessary to prevent irreparable harm to the person seeking it; the potential harm to the person seeking the injunction outweighs the potential harm to the defendant; and the injunction is "consistent with the public interest."

Foreclosures and delinquencies have already increased sharply in Mississippi as a result of a nationwide housing crisis fueled by raising interest rates on subprime mortgages.
"I think we are going to see an enormous spike in the foreclosure rate," Eisler said.

The legal profession can be a maddening world, and Eisler, 56, said he found catharsis in the process of writing the play.
